Matt and Casey’s beach wedding in Sandbridge was a great way to finish out my 2011 weddings. They kept it low-key and had perfect beach weather. I love the backyard of the home they rented and that they danced under the Christmas lights strung under the deck – that little detail made the photos that much more magical! Casey’s mom made her sweet dress and it perfectly highlighted her unique and colorful back tattoo. Her mom also made all of the table decorations and the shell bouquets the girls carried.

Casey’s mom, Debi, did such a good job making her dress. I loved the overlay of lace.

Casey’s mom also has incredible back tattoos.

This is a straight-out-of-camera crop and I love it – that adorable smile as they exchange rings.

Their dog, Doyle, served as the ringbearer!

Definitely a favorite.

They said they weren’t photogenic but I barely offered posing suggestions. They’re natural just wonderful together.

Love these, too.

Lest you think they are a serious couple, there were some really funny moments during the bride and groom photos, too.

They can even make mid-day direct light look good!

Another one of their little adorable moments.

But they do serious SO well, too!

For someone who says she isn’t good having her photo taken, I think she’s pretty good at it!

Their colorful cake.

Christmas lights hanging from the decking. See? Magical. Matt’s not bad, either!
